Fodor's Review

The multilevel semicircular layout of this museum was inspired by Pueblo Bonito, the prehistoric ruin in northwestern New Mexico. Start by watching the museum's video about the region's Pueblo culture. Then move to the upper-level alcove, where changing exhibits feature aspects of the arts and crafts of each of the state's 19 Pueblos. Lower-level exhibits trace the history of the Pueblo people. Youngsters can touch Native American pottery, jewelry, weaving, tools, and dried corn at the Hands-On Corner, draw petroglyph designs, and design pots. Ceremonial dances are performed on weekends at 11 and 2, and there are arts-and-crafts demonstrations each weekend. The Pueblo Harvest Café & Bakery, is a great spot for breakfast, lunch, or dinner. Note: The museum lies a bit northeast of Old Town, in the Los Duranes neighborhood—a five-minute drive, or hop on their courtesy shuttle in summer months.
